Boring but necessary thread! I just want to find a reliable, non clumpy, mid price range mascara for every day use. It's become a mission, can anyone help me please?!

I'm a mascara fiend. I buy at least one a month and genuinely, the best one I've had for a long time is Boots Natural Collection - £1.99.

Failing that, Max Factor False Lash (although it's a bit stabby on the eyelids)

Boots no.5

Loreal telescopic - love it.

ChristmasZombie Tue 10-Nov-15 22:30:29

I love Maybelline Great Lash.

Bellapierre - buy it from eBay and you can get it delivered for around £5 or £6: it's recently been included in various beauty boxes etc, so there's usually a fair few for sale from private sellers (Ditto for Eyeko)

They're real! Benefit .

I've got the Benefit Roller Lash mascara, and it really is fantastic.

Not sure how much it is though because I got it for my birthday.

Revlon Fabulash.

I don't use mascara - I have eyelash extensions and they're bloody lovely! They look very natural and it's brilliant to stumble out of bed, comb my hair and look vaguely presentable with barely any effort.

Watching. I'm a Dior fan but would like brown or navy without breaking the bank.

Ysl babydoll... Ok not mid range but it's AMAZING!

Clinique do the best mascaras IMO. And they don't irritate eyes smile can't remember how much they are, as mine has lasted for ages!!

BlueBlueBelles Tue 10-Nov-15 22:49:44

Max factor false lash effect. Amazing.

Cerseirys Tue 10-Nov-15 22:51:04

Maybelline and L'Oreal are owned by the same company and have some of the best mascaras around.

I used Benefit They're Rael but wouldn't recommend it - it smudged on my browbone really quickly, for no reason that I could ascertain but was difficult to remove.

Clinique High Impact is my favourite, costs about £20 I think.

Max factor masterpiece max

PaulAnkaTheDog Tue 10-Nov-15 23:02:15

They're Real! Benefit.

Cornwalldoula Tue 10-Nov-15 23:04:02

Rimmel waterproof. Non-clumpy, doesn't smudge, easy.

Avon Supershock mascara

I did one eyelash with Avon Supershock and one with benefit They're Real and DS said he preferred the Avon disclaimer he may have just said that to get a biscuit

Avon like to do limited edition packaging so it means they sell them off in the sale regularly

Max Factor waterproof false lash effect is bombproof, and you do need an oil based remover.

If a nuclear bomb drops on me I'm sure my eyelashes will be left intact grin

TheSeptemberIssue which Natural Collection mascara is it?

Max Factor masterpiece max is my holy grail - I was very disappointed by Benefit They're Real. My eyelashes are long and blonde, but fine, and it just stuck them all together!

TheSeptemberIssue Wed 11-Nov-15 06:21:32

Pandarific - it's the LashLength one. White tube.

PunkrockerGirl Wed 11-Nov-15 06:26:42

I got the new Glamour mag with the free Clinique mascara. I'm a bit meh, tbh. It's ok but I certainly wouldn't rush out buy a full sized one.

Benefit's They're Real gets my vote.
